A harvester head is a part of a heavy forestry vehicle that is used for logging operations for de-limbing, felling, and bucking trees. A forest harvester typically comes with a forwarder that hauls the logs to a roadside lading. These are highly specialized tools that require careful maintenance. A harvester head consists of a hydraulically powered chain saw that cuts trees and their bases to cross-cut them into log length. De-limbing knives are employed to remove braches of trees. Feed rollers play an important role in grasping of trees. Diameter sensors and length-measuring wheels are used to measure dimensions and calculate the volume of harvested logs.
